WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 7 Dec 2012 Sly Fox Christmas Ale w/Brian O’Reilly

Back in October we took 50 of our closest friends and headed down to Sly Fox Brewery in Pottstown PA.  This was our first trip to the new brewery and it really looked great.  We took a peek at the new Braukon brewhouse and got a great behind-the-scenes look at the brewery & packaging line….and of course some great food & beer.

As we worked to empty the entire brewery supply of Black Raspberry Reserve, we decided it was time to feature another Sly Fox beer on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz.  We’ve featured their Pikeland Pils in the past, but with the holidays approaching I knew we had a perfect beer to welcome back brewmaster Brian O’Reilly.

Sly Fox Christmas Ale is a classic holiday brew, but when they added the packaging that allows you to write “TO” and “FROM” names on your 12oz can or 750ml bottle, I knew we had our perfect Sly Fox show beer.

Sly Fox Christmas Ale actually begins life as a Red Ale and from there, Brian adds in Nutmeg, Ginger, Cinnamon, Allspice & even cloves to make this wintery holiday brew.  Don’t let the spices fool you, this beer comes loaded with flavor, body and a very drinkable 5.5% ABV.  Available on draft, in 750ml bottles and my favorite 12oz cans, this beer is a great beer to take to a holiday party…and with the To/From on the label you just HAVE to give this as a gift.

It was fun to wish Brian O’Reilly a happy 17th anniversary and even more fun trying to pry some details about his surprise Special Anniversary Ale out of Brian.  This new beer will be released on 12/14 at their special day-long Anniversary Party at the brewery so stay tuned.  This party will feature Sly Fox beers, bands and some really great sounding food too.

Be sure to try out Sly Fox Christmas Ale 2012 and be sure to give some as a gift so you can write on the label.  T

hank you to Brian O’Reilly from Sly Fox, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
